Sutton Coldfield is a much sought after suburb of Birmingham, located 8 miles distance from the city centre. It has great bus and train links to Birmingham as well as access to the M6 and the M42 making it a great commuter town.
It is an affluent area with well-regarded schools, a very low unemployment rate and thus homes two of the most expensive residential streets in the UK. It attracts young families offering the perfect mix of urban and rural life. Sutton Park, one of the largest urban parks in Europe, and a national nature reserve are huge attractions. Other nature reserves such as Plants Brook are nearby and offer an additional pastoral escape from booming Birmingham. Still those who are looking for urban amenities on the doorstep need go no further than Birmingham Road, which offers a range of restaurants and pubs to explore and is home to The Mall which is the best place for shopping.
Due to the number of respectable schools, leisure facilities and ample green space, property prices are higher than average for the region and range from traditional Victorian detached period houses to new builds. New Oscott, Four Oaks, and Mere Green are the most desirable areas to live.
